A ‘short list’ is selected in June and all those on the list are advised before the judge visits in early July. Gardens are assessed according to the overall design, range of colour and on the visible amount of work the owner has contributed.
There are two categories:
- A Traditional (larger) Front Garden
- A Small Garden of courtyard proportions or one incorporating hard standing for vehicles
The results will be announced at the Summer Show. First prize winner in the Large Garden category will be awarded the Ronald Flack Memorial Trophy . First prize in the Small Garden category will be awarded a £10 National Garden Gift Voucher. Runners up in each category will receive a certificate.
(*Winners in 2 previous years are not eligible in current year)
Anyone can nominate gardens to be considered – please contact Committee Member Helen Gillings on 01277 353 562.
